This topic may not be a 'roll call' topic per se, but this area seems to get the most traffic so I thought I'd post it here. I am looking to pick some brains, get some ideas for recipe varients of pulled pork nachos and pulled pork tacos. I am interested to see what others in this forum think would make an excellent taco/nacho paring with pulled pork. No suggestion is too far out there, just want tons of feedback.
Up until recently, I have been smoking a pork butt for a few hours on a standard charcoal pit (adding some Jack Daniel's whiskey barrell chips) and then crock potting it for 6 hours or so in a root beer bath. The root beer really gives it a nice sweetness, but since it's not really 'smoked' I don't get the pinkness or the crust so much. I'm about to do a full blown smoke only version using the rub/sauce recipe I bought on this site. I feel good about the rub since it is VERY similar to the one I had already made myself and been using. The home-made sauce will be a departure for me since I have used Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory and Brown Sugar up till now. I also make my own slaw, because pulled pork sandwiches DEMAND slaw!
Anyway, pics posted of my previous cooks via the root beer method, enjoy. PLEASE give me feedback for recipe ideas for the pulled pork tacos and nachos! Looking forward to it!
